Regirock (Japanese: レジロック Regirock) is a Rock-type Legendary Pokémon.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Along with Regice and Registeel, it is one of the three Legendary golems of Hoenn.


Regirock is a large golem made of brown rocks. Regirock has an orange pattern on its face that resembles a capital letter "H". It has long arms with jutting shoulders and club-like hands, its legs are short in comparison to its body. There is a line of rocky spines running down its back. When it gets damaged in battle it will search for new rocks to repair itself. Because of this, the rocks it is made of come from several different places, which contributes to Regirock's patchwork appearance. Regirock does not seem to have a heart or brain. It generally lives in caves.


  • Regirock is tied with Regice for the highest single stat of any Legendary Pokémon with its 200-point Defense stat. Regice's is its Special Defense.
  • In Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, there is an unobtainable Regirock Doll programmed into the game. It may have been intended to be obtained with the e-Reader.
  • In the Pokémon Adventures manga, Regirock was the only member of the Legendary golems not to be used by a Trainer that specialized in its type. Regice was used by Glacia, an Ice-type Trainer, and Registeel was used by Steven Stone, a Steel-type Trainer, while Regirock was used by Sidney and Drake, a Dark-type Trainer and Dragon-type Trainer, respectively.
  • Regirock's in-game footprint resembles a scarab beetle, a real life insect that was considered sacred by ancient Egyptians, possibly alluding to Regirock's desert habitat. Scarab beetles also represent the rebirth of ancient Egypt.
  • Regirock is the only Legendary golem without fingers.


Regirock is based on the golems of Hebrew legend. The legends cast them as servants of higher powers and are said to have writing on their heads. When the writing is removed, the creature would be weakened.
